Construction vibrations are a nuisance to owners, contractors and the general public, but are unavoidable in many circumstances. Join us for a free webinar as we look at the options for mitigating risk of vibration damage claims. Pre-construction condition surveys, vibration control plans and vibration monitors provide a three phase approach to risk management. In addition, we will explore the current technology and methodology for these services and discuss how they can be applied to different projects.

Structure Support On Laterally Swept Piles
Anyone who has observed a significant number of piles has seen that, inevitably, the pile is not perfectly straight after driving. In spite of the best efforts of contractors, there are a whole host of reasons for piles to end up out-of-plumb or to have a curve, sometimes referred to as pile sweep. For two, recent projects with numerous swept pile, the available research was determined to be limited in application given the investigated pile sizes, lengths and measured sweep. As a result, the project team chose to perform static load testing to evaluate the ultimate resistance of the swept...

Is Your Building’s Insulation all it’s Cracked up to be?
If a building lacks appropriate insulation, simply adding more can create problems for material durability as it causes exterior walls to go through more freeze-thaw cycles. To further complicate matters, if humidity levels are elevated on the interior of a building due to the activities going on inside, the walls and roof will soon exhibit staining, damage, and deterioration. It’s important to understand the dynamics between walls, existing insulation, and new insulation, as these can all cause a dew point to occur. In order to appropriately prevent condensation, mold and deterioration of wood and steel, insulation and a strategically placed...
